For the dozen or so of you that have been following my photography for the past 11 years or so, you may remember my first photo book, Trout Dreams. I have decided to do another book, that is very early stages for my motorcycle work that I am calling Harleys and Holgas Forever, which is what I go by on Instagram and also expresses my feelings toward both things.
If you follow me on Instagram, you may remember the January 25, 2020 post I made where I first mentioned publishing my second book, a book of my motorcycle photography. At the time, I had what I felt were just a few photographs that I thought would be worthy of a book and I while I don't exactly have enough for a book right now, I definitely have more.
I have learned a lot about creating and publishing your own book, since Trout Dreams, so I am confident that my next book will be better in terms of layout and design.
When I did Trout Dreams I would regularly post screenshots of the book as I figured out what fonts I wanted to use and page layout, I don't think that I'll do that this time, but I thought I would at least post a couple of screenshots to give you an idea of what the book will look like.
On this format the book is a hardcover with a dust cover, the dark section on the right,which would be the back side of the front, I plan on having some sort of text an artist statement and probably a picture of me. On the left, section, I plan on creating some sort of collage of some of my Instagram photos of my own Harley, I may even create larger collage of them too for one of the last pages in the book.
As with Trout Dreams, I will have a foreword written by someone that knows my work, and while I have a short list of people that I would like to do that, I am not ready for that just yet.
That's all for now, I don't know if I will post as much as I did about the book as did with Trout Dreams as I was working on it, but when it is complete, you will certainly see it here.
